Katima Mulilo is situated in the Caprivi strip and is the capital of the Zambezi Region, Namibia's far northeast extension into central Southern Africa. It comprises two electoral constituencies, Katima Mulilo Rural and Katima Mulilo Urban. Katima is located on the national road B8 on the banks of the Zambezi River in lush riverine vegetation with tropical birds and monkeys. The town receives an annual average rainfall of 654 millimetres.
Visitors to the area can be excused for feeling that this town feels more like Zambia than Namibia as it is the countries most remote outpost. It is 1200km from Windhoek, but only half a kilometer from Zambia!
The Caprivi Cultural Festival is held in late September and the Caprivi Arts Centre is the place to head for your curios.
